The History of the Marinship District of Sausalito
Sausalito People Series / After Hours Inside the Library
Not only the entire Marinship district’s land mass, but its roads, infrastructure and industrial buildings were constructed in 1942 for the war effort. Once online, Ninety-three Liberty Ships were constructed in two years. After the war the district became fertile ground for thinkers, artists, writers and musicians. A thirty-two-year resident of Sausalito’s floating home community, Larry Clinton is a direct beneficiary of the waterfront lifestyle that grew out of the Marinship development. As past president of the Floating Homes Association, he is particularly interested in the history (as well as the future) of Sausalito’s waterfront. Larry is also past president of the Sausalito Historical Society. His illustrated talk will be based on research that was conducted for the Society's permanent Marinship exhibit at the Bay Model.
